John Lewis: Today, young padawans, Grand Master of Ghani Thai Ass Soundz DeadFett and myself, The Sheep-Fucker One, shall provided you your review for The Immortal Iron Fist #1. SPOILERS FOR WHITE MARTIAL ART CHAMPIONS!!!Â In this issue, young padawans are introduced to two other Iron Fists besides the Friendly Neighborhood Iron-Fist while Iron Fist kicks some Hydra ass Bruce Lee style.This is issue was pretty much a set-up issue to get the reader interested in Danny Rand. As a fan of IF, I was both happy and disappointed. I was happy because it seems that Fraction, Brubaker, and Aja are dead-set on making Iron Fist as great as I think he is. However, I was a bit disappointed as I felt it was a bit too decompressed (or whatever). That said, I think thereâ€™s a hell of a lot of potential in this series. What do you think, Grand Master of Thai Ass Soundz?
Tony “DeadFett” Mourlot: I havenâ€™t had too much experience with the Iron Fist character. I picked this up mostly because Ed Brubaker is co-writing. I felt this issue really offered a nice set up for the future as well as giving a good background to the character. I like the idea that there has been many Iron Fists over the course of history. The story had a nice blend of action and character moments for me. I didnâ€™t care for the use of Hydra however. They seem to be the generic group that Marvel writers tend to use as enemies. They just had an appearance in Captain America #24. Also written by Brubaker oddly enough. I still really enjoyed the issue and will pick up the second issue. David Ajaâ€™s art felt perfect for the book. His gritty style works good for the subject matter. The action scenes were well done and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed the part with Iron Fist plunging his hands into the heart of the dragon. Anything youâ€™d like to add, Master of the Butt-Tuba?
John: Hell no. Iâ€™m done being your review monkey. *pushes chair down and leaves studio crying*
